This rotation will expose students to the full spectrum of family medicine as practiced in an urban center. Students will work on the inpatient medicine service, on OB, and in the residency clinic with their assigned faculty preceptor as well as other faculty members and residents. A week of night float allows for the full experience of a busy inpatient FM service, and the student should be involved in or perform multiple inpatient and outpatient procedures including Cesarean section, ultrasound, and office-based surgical and women’s health procedures.
